Thank you to all the co-pinners who make our group boards great. Our boards help make writing and blogging just a little bit easier for more followers each day.
Here you’ll find: group board FAQs, guidelines, invitation instructions, and the chance to voice your opinion.
Group Board Guidelines
These guidelines may change as the boards grow and needs develop. Send questions, complaints, and ideas via Pinterest message or our contact page.
FAQ: All Boards
How many pins should I add to the group board?
Aim for 1-2 of your best pins per day. Think quality, not quantity. You don’t want to be seen as a spammer.
Why was my pin deleted?
Pins can be deleted for a few reasons: duplicates, inappropriate content, off-topic content, chain letters, pity-bait, blatant self-promotion that adds no value to followers, and more. Pins that don’t perform well are also removed.
How can I ensure my pins don't get deleted?
Check the board before you pin. Did someone else pin your pin recently? Don’t pin it. Otherwise, avoid the issues in the question above.
May I invite other pinners to this board?
Yes, please do. However, spammers and the people who add them will be blocked. Mercilessly. So make sure the pinner you invite is a quality pinner. See the next question for how to identify quality pinners.
How do I know if someone is a quality pinner?
Quality pinners are real people, not spammers or bots, who are active on Pinterest. There are a few red flags to look out for. These will help you know if a Pinterest account is a spammer or a bot:
Fewer than 1k pins
Dozens of boards with only a few pins per board
Low to no followers
Unpersonalized board names
Pins don’t match the theme of the board name they’re pinned to
Be safe. Add great pinners who:
Have boards that are about writing or blogging
Have at least 1k pins (to show they’re active)
Don’t have any of the red flags listed above
Note: Co-pinners on the Bloggers Anonymous group board must have an active blog.
Is it possible to be blocked for bad behavior?
Yes. A pinner may be blocked from a group board for repeatedly or deliberately breaking the guidelines set for each board or in the FAQs. Ultimately, the decision to remove someone from a group board listed here remains solely at my discretion.
That being said, I usually send you a Pinterest message to fix a problem first (when that option is available).
